Karen has been managing our 2 properties in Auckland North Shore. We originally hired her 10 years ago. One of our rental properties was empty for a few months or more. The place needed attention and refreshing. However, we live out of Auckland, so we need someone we can trust to do this job. She has done a great job organising repairs and maintenance to make it rentable and found tenants straight away. She has looked after our property and us since then, we cannot live without her. She has been doing excellent on job of handling the many difficulties with our properties, tenants and even the neighbours of properties. She has been able to keep in our budget for maintenance and repairs that take place. She has good communication with Tenants an us and makes both party happy. It is just hassle free for us to have a property manager like Karen. We recommend her to anyone who has a rental property that they need managed in an economical and efficient manner. We would highly recommend Karen if you are looking for an honest, hardworking Rental Property Manager. She is more than qualified to handle all of your management needs.

Just want to say a special thanks for taking the stress out of managing my properties for nearly 15 years now. It's been great to know they are in safe hands. In particular you and the team have always kept me up to date and handled maintenance, finding great tenants, regular rent payments that are always on time, legal requirements and going that extra mile i.e. Personally cleaning my new Albany property when I had issues with my builder completing the build in a presentable state before the new tenant moved in. All things I really appreciate and remember. Great job and service!
I have total confidence in Karen managing my properties. She is attentive and conscientious. Karen ensures the property is looked after and raises any concerns immediately...and certainly not afraid of the hard word/action when required.
"We have had our properties managed by RayWhite Browns Bay, (led by team Karen Ingram & Shane Crowle) for approximately 18+ years, and are delighted with results. We have always had long-term tenants, whom pay rent and periodically properties updated. It has been a hassle free, rewarding investment, which has allowed my wife and I to focus on our careers and family, in another country".

Karen has been my property manager for 2 properties I have in the Bays. I live and work in North Africa, so rely on a professional Property Manager. Karen, I have found to be professional, and honest, she has good judgement and we communicate on any issues or decisions.Also at times Karen will make a decision, and I trust her to do this. She not only is a good property manager to me the landlord but also to my tenants. I am very happy and glad she is my property manager, and would recommend her. Julie Rose

I wanted to write and thank you for the outstanding service you have given us in looking after our rental property in Browns Bay. Before you took over the management of this property we had been managing it ourselves for some time, which was stressful and I have to say fraught with all sorts of problems I had not thought of. We had a long list of tenants with various problems resulting and we were achieving a lower rental for our property than you were able to achieve for us. We also feel that our property , in your care was much better maintained than it was when we were managing it, despite our best efforts, you were able to secure great maintenance people for us at a much better price than we could! The tenants were happier and so were we! The only reason for terminating our agreement was that family have now moved into the property so it is no longer available as a rental. If we ever bought another rental we would certainly be coming back to you and asking you to manage it for us. I would highly recommend your property management skills and wish you every success in your ongoing work. Thank you again,
Susan & Martin
